Maui Ocean Center, Maui Reviews - Write a Review
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Maui Ocean Center. It was a pretty warm day, but there any many indoor displays, which allowed us to get out of the heat. We loved our free picture and loved purchasing wood carvings from the gentleman. The variety of different fish and other species was amazing. We absolutely loved seeing the turtles and the large deep sea tank with all the sharks was also very enjoyable. We loved getting a Dole whip! Those are our favorite!
Good: Free parking. Amazing set of sea creatures including sharks, large stingrays and many other exotic ones. Free live informative sessions in front of the large tanks. Aquarium water is continuously cycled through the ocean so animals live in an environment similar to that of their natural habitat. Great acrylic (clear) observation tunnel. Big souvenir shop. The center grows its own coral and transfer some out to ocean to help reefs grow. Not so good: Relatively speaking, it's a smaller aquarium. Relatively speaking, more expensive entry fee. Labeling of the exhibits, tanks and animals were inadequate or mismatched.
Very small aquarium. I went with my 2 year old daughter and we were able to walk through the park in an hour. Considering their proximity to the ocean, I was expecting more exhibits, more fish, more sharks and other exotic ocean critters. There was also a presentation on sharks and the staff did not seem that knowledgeable as they were not able to answer some common questions. I was definitely very disappointed. Definitely not worth your time. Skip this item on your itinerary.
Fabulous aquarium with really attentive, polite, friendly, and knowledgeable staff. The presentations they do are very informative and impressive. The ability to touch starfish was neat, as were the jellyfish and sharks (you can't touch those!). Facility is located in one of the windiest harbors in the world. A bit pricey at $100 for a family of four, but if you buy online ahead of time, you can skip the lines and save 15%!
We visit once a month. Everyone there from check in, to restaurant is always so nice! Love this place! The kids are always fascinated! We love having lunch at the restaurant. Food always good and SERVICE IS GREAT!! The servers are so kind and accommodating as we come with 3 toddlers, 3 and below. Very draining...Overall, awesome time had by all!
